(2/26/2020) Sacramento, CA … Due to a conflict with the Calistoga High School graduation ceremony, the June 13th NARC King of the West Sprint Car Series event at Calistoga Speedway has been cancelled. Complicating the issue was the fact that the event was scheduled to take place in the infield of the picturesque speedway.
Several replacement dates were considered. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts with other major events and sanctioning bodies prevented a viable option. In addition, most options presented conflicts for teams chasing the 2020 championship. The June 13th is now designated as a potential rain date, unless it gets moved to another track. (ED NOTE: Hanford and/or Stockton can not accommodate.)
To head the rumor mill off at the pass, the cancellation has nothing to do with the ongoing contract negotiations between the Napa County Fair and the City of Calistoga.
The quest for this season’s NARC King of the West Fujitsu Racing Series will now consist of 18-events. It kicks off on March 14th at the Dirt Track at Kern County Raceway Park with a combo dual show that will also feature NASCAR Superstocks on the 1/2 mile paved oval.
The NARC King of the West Fujitsu Racing Series will return to Calistoga Speedway on September 5-6th for the Louie Vermeil Classic.
